A huge blaze erupted before dawn Friday north of downtown Oakland, engulfing a six-story, mixed-use building that was under construction and prompting concern about a crane that was in danger of collapsing. A huge wire burned at a construction site at Valdez and 23rd streets in Oakland Friday.
The under-construction building that went up in flames early Friday in Oakland was in an area once known as Auto Row that the city is trying to turn into “a destination retail district.”According to a project website, the Alta Waverly building at 23rd and Valdez streets two blocks east of Broadway was scheduled to open next spring. It was to have included 196 apartment units, an underground garage and as much as 31,500 square feet of stores.
Central Paris is made for walking, and increasingly, bicycling. Despite its narrow streets and busy boulevards, the city is remarkably bike friendly thanks to an ambitious campaign to curb vehicle use and reduce pollution. Velib, the city’s bike share, turns 10 this year with 1,800 stations and more than 23,000 bicycles for rent. The now-ubiquitous gray bikes are popular with Parisians and tourists. You can purchase a ticket to use the system for the day for 1.7 euros.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
